The Name of the Wind Summary : 'I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me' So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin. The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read title.

Vultures in the Wind Summary : RIMMER’S MOST CONTROVERSIAL BOOK YET! Luke was close to death. He had been beaten mercilessly and was unrecognisable. They wanted the names of his ANC accomplices. Matt and Luke are born on the same day, spending an idyllic childhood in the heart of the Transkei, blissfully unaware of the differences between them. When they are forced to leave their home, both young boys struggle to find their place in a society where racial segregation is part of everyday life. Slowly they begin to build their lives but everything changes when Luke is taken in the night from Matt’s flat to a place unknown and is brutally beaten for information. After spending time in a hospital, they sadly part with Luke embarking on the revolutionary fight for freedom and Matt building a business empire. It’s the 1960s, South Africa, and it would be another twenty-nine years before they would meet again. Can either of them find peace, or was their all-too-brief childhood their only comfort in a world driven by political and societal extremes? Told from a personal perspective, Peter Rimmer’s Vultures in the Wind will open your eyes to the fate of South Africa and of the machinations of the great powers of the East and West.
